Cedar House Day Nursery opened its doors to children and families on 2nd September 2013.

Situated in our amazing woodland setting here at Ransom Wood it is just 10 minutes from the M1 and has easy access from several main routes in and out of Mansfield.

Cedar House is an OFSTED outstanding Nursery and can accommodate up to 40 children each day aged 3 months to 5 years.  There is ample parking and a spacious, enclosed, secure garden and woodland play area to the rear of the property with access to the woods for walks and further exploration.

Husband and wife team Steve and Christine Doubtfire have owned Smarties Private Day Nursery on Nottingham Road, Mansfield since November 2006.  Having both enjoyed careers in secondary and further education, Steve and Christine are committed to maintaining the best quality day care available, providing a high quality environment which supports the care and the educational development of the children.  A family business, Smarties is a popular, over-subscribed nursery and the opening of Cedar House presents the opportunity to welcome more children into the Smarties family. Last inspected in November 2011, Smarties was awarded outstanding in every area of care and learning, endorsing the hard work, determination and commitment of the whole nursery team on a daily basis.

If you would like to visit Cedar House please telephone Michelle Edge, the nursery manager on 01623 627035 to arrange an appointment.
